This is My Letter to the World: Writing Epistolary Poems with Gail Martin


Registration is now open for this workshop (below). There are 6 seats available (limit 35 seats).

What does it mean to write a letter to the world or to God or your 23-year-old self or your old football coach? How about a love letter to your legs? Why write epistolary poems at all and why have they been around since the Greeks and Romans? In this workshop we will read examples of “letter poems” then, using prompts, create our own with an emphasis on fun and generating new work.

Appropriate for: Beginning as well as seasoned writers.

This event is FREE and open to the public.
